2005 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 75000 miles
Have a 2005 Chevy Malibu. Main/driver side power window switch no longer working. Only front passenger power window works; the other three power windows do not work. Started a month or so ago, where I could only put the windows up and down periodically. For example, would have to play with the switch (five buttons – four windows and child lock) in the drivers side front (up, down, etc.), Sometimes for 20-30 minutes. Finally, it would “catch" and I could then power up/down all four windows from the front driver side. The issue got progressively worse, taking a half-day or so, before it would catch and I could use the windows. Now, the only power window I can use is the front passenger, and only when using the switch on the front passenger door. No other windows or power window switches, apart from the front passenger, is working. I thought it might be the main power window switch (five-button part), so I bought a used one on E-Bay Motors. I put the switch in, but still does not work. I’m not much of a mechanic, so I didn’t know how to test the replacement power window switch that I purchased. I was thinking that maybe that is still my problem and that I should bite the bullet and buy a new one, but didn’t want to do so if that isn’t really my problem? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
